EK1101-0010 | EtherCAT Coupler with ID switch, Extended Distance

The EK1101-0010 coupler connects EtherCAT with the EtherCAT Terminals (ELxxxx). A station consists of an EK1101-0010 coupler, any number of EtherCAT Terminals and a bus end cap. The coupler converts the passing telegrams from Ethernet 100BASE-TX to E-bus signal representation.

Using the extended distance connection, distances of up to 300 m can be bridged between two Extended Distance Couplers. If only one connection of the two Couplers is configured for Extended Distance, the maximum distance between the stations is 100 m.

The EK1101-0010 has three hexadecimal ID switches for assigning an ID to a group of EtherCAT components. This group can then be located at any position within the EtherCAT network. Variable topologies are therefore easily implementable.
